I agree. I told my parents the same day I took the test because I had the same idea that if I m/c I would tell them about it.

I'll also be 7 weeks at Thanksgiving and we are announcing it to the aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents that day.

PS; Is there any way your doctor will give you an apt before then? I was told by my family physician to call & schedule my first prenatal appointment today! If you have one, then maybe you'll feel more comfortable telling people? Just a thought!

I am in the same boat. I will be 7 weeks at Thanksgiving, too! Congrats :-)

I think I am going to tell my immediate family on Thanksgiving and then break it out a little more during Christmas (like my aunts/uncles, etc.) The only one in my family that knows currently is my mom and she's having a tough time keeping it a secret ...

We'll be 14 weeks at Thanksgiving, so that's when we're telling. I might wait until Christmas in your situation, since you won't have had an appointment. By Christmas, you'll have pictures to show.
I definitely don't think I'd wait until people ask. If they have any manners they won't ask.
If you do wait for Christmas, you could make a photo card with the ultrasound pic, that might be cute.
Congratulations on your pregnancy!
